Your California Legacy: Bunker Hill


Published 2009


"The California Legacy Project at Santa Clara University is dedicated to preserving Californias unique culture through our book series, our radio productions, and now through the virtual world of Second Life, using machinima videos to visualize the writings.
Currently, California Legacy has published almost 40 books -- reprints, single author studies, and new anthologies -- with our publishing partner, Heyday Books. With KAZU Public Radio, 90.3 Pacific Grove, we have produced nearly 500 segments of our 90 second "Your California Legacy" programs.

This first episode is an excerpt from Raymond Chandler's 1942 novel "The High Window" -- Draxtor Despres (Bernhard Drax), YouTube description, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5UHQ7G0Vuw

"Imagine what we'd think of California if Toshio Mori had never written his gentle short stories about life in Oakland's "Lil' Yokohama", Walter Nordhoff had never hidden behind his alter-ego SeƱor Don Juan Obrigon to tell the tale of "The Journey of the Flame" or Bayard Taylor had never transformed his gold rush journalism into the compelling chronicle Eldorado.
It's pretty easy to do, of course, since all of these essential works of Californiana have long been out of print.

No wonder East Coast elites like Woody Allen think there's no culture here.

The California Legacy Project aims to change that perception.

Combining the resources of California's oldest university and one of California's most respected publishers, the series has now more than thirty books in print and continues to raise public awareness and appreciation for California's cultural legacy.

With close to 500 segments streaming online and being broadcast on public radio stations around the country, the CLP has now entered the world of Second Life, determined to add a compelling visual component to the audio excerpts.

The sets can be visited on Santa Clara Island anytime. Contact SCU Shepherd in world for further information.
